185 Days of Growth

American writer William Saroyan once wrote; “Of course if you like your kids, if you love them from the moment they begin, you yourself begin all over again, in them, with them, and so there is something more to the world again.”  185 day ago you, Lillian Jane, not only were born to us, but also helped your mother and me in our own rebirth process.  We see a beautiful new world through your  gorgeous blue eyes (you can thank your daddy for those).  We see your growth and share in the struggles and triumphs as you learn to do new things, like sit up and feed yourself.  We laugh with you for no other reason than you are happy to see us… to spend time with us.  You melt our hearts, give us hope, make us happy, remind us to laugh, keep us clam, and lift our faith.  But you have done more than that… so much more.  Namely, you have taught me just how deeply I love your mother.  Lillian, she continues to amaze me in every way and I know she is the best mother to you that I could ask for.  So those 185 days of growth are not only your own, but of ours too.

Happy 6 month birthday… we love you!   (Here you are with ‘Teddy’… our favorite playtime bear.)
